outside the reactor. so high that top u.s. environmental officials report that a single dose is enough to cause hemorrhaging. more from osaka, japan. >> reporter: yes, megyn. it is looking serious now in terms of the quantity of radiation emanating from the nuclear plant. it appears that we have significant problems at reactor 2 and reactor 3. hearing there are pools of water in a trench that drains off from the reactor towards the sea. it's about 90 feet from the sea, we believe. and that's perhaps one of the reasons that we're seeing greater contamination off the shore. the information is not entirely cleaand that is because they're not sure exactly where the leak is coming from. the greatest concern is that it's coming from the container vessel, indicating, indeed, that there is a partial meltdown. the meltdown may be temporary, that hopefully they will be able to fill that container area up and keep the rods cool. because the radiation levels are so high, it's difficult for the workers to get in there. if they're able to go in without getting radiation burns, it limits what they ca
all of this is. on the heels of a nuclear prices in japan, south carolina here in the u.s. went to court demanding that the nuclear regulatory commission provide a permanent place to store america's waste. there are 104 operating reactors, they're scattered across 65 plants in 31 different states. if you take a look at this map, this gives you a better idea of exactly where this 63 thousand tons of spent fuel, the darker the color of the state, the more radioactive waste that state has, according to the nrc. again, we're talking about 63,000 tons of spent fuel. if you take a look, with the telestrator working, illinois is the state with most, 776 tons. coming in second place is pennsylvania. as we know, pennsylvania, the site of three mile island, the nuclear site that had zadisaste back in the late '80s. and 3,700 tons of spent fuel. pretty much a tie with north carolina and south carolina here. let me show you a map quickly that illustrates what we're talking about when we say spent fuel. these are the spent fuel pools. they're steel-lined concrete pools filled with water like
on the ground were the clearest indication that intensive air strikes carried out by the u.s., french and naval assets over the past week have softened up the libyan military considerably. meanwhile, the front page of " the new york times" - below the fold in the new york times, there's a story on the event recovered live on c-span yesterday. this is prompting us to ask republicans to define what will define the gop primary. with that, republicans only -- 202 the area code. our first call is from ardmore, oklahoma. caller: good morning. i believe the people of united states, their first concern is the economy. another thing we have to be concerned about is full disclosure. in this administration under obama, there has never been such hit in things. he spends money like going to brazil and giving out this money. they owe us tons of money. under the clinton years clinton lent them $100 billion. it goes on and on and on. when did congress lose the power of the purse? the other thing which is the greatest thing in our nation is we have to come back to god and of this nation repents if my people cal

of 2011. last month's "u.s.a."/gallup poll, 72% of americans favor congressional action this year to bring our troops home from afghanistan. this week, the rasmussen report finds that 52% of voters want our troops home from afghanistan this year. and to quote this poll, a majority of voters for the first time support an immediate withdrawal of all u.s. troops from afghanistan or the creation of a timetable to bring them all home within a year. 14 months ago i asked a retired military general to advise me on afghanistan. i have asked him for his thoughts, and i will read some of them to you. back in november i emailed this general and i said, what do you think about the possibilities of being in afghanistan for four more years? and, mr. speaker, i am going to read his quote. i do not believe that 40 more years would guarantee victory, whatever that is. the war is costing money and lives all in short supply. mr. speaker, there's a retired lieutenant colonel in jacksonville, north carolina, which is in my district. he served in the united states marine corps for 31 years. his name is dennis a
concludes this article with the statement that the u.s. does not have an energy problem, it has an energy strategy problem. think about that. it's not lacking the resources. it's the strategy for how we develop our energy resources. during his campaign, president obama liked to quote dr. martin luther king, and he talked about the fierce urgency of now. and there are few issues more important or more fundamental to our nation's long-term success than a viable energy policy. people are very correct when they say that parts of this will -- will take time. parts of it will take a longer period of time, but now is nevermore fiercely urgent than when we have such an important and such a long journey ahead of us. if we're ever going to take control of our energy future, now is the time to get -- to come together, support the policies that promote abundant, affordable, clean, diverse and domestic energy. critically important to us, madam president, and i look forward to these conversations that will continue on the floor as we talk about ways that we not only work to reduce our budget, ways that
. meanwhile, the u.s. now says it has moved igts ships and aircraft away from one of the quake-stricken plants after discovering low-level radioactive contamination and "the new york times" reports that the "uss ronald reagan" passed through a radioactive cloud, causing crew members to receive a month's worth of radiation in about an hour. this is something we had a gut feeling about on friday morning as the story was unfolding and now it appears to be escalating. >> the first reports out that were none of the nuclear plants were affected. mika refused to read the script that way. you just sort of knew. if you had an 8.9 or 9.0 earthquake, these facilities could be impacted. that's the real story now. we have our newspaper segment. you look at all of the headlines here, whether it's the boston globe, if you look, this is what "the washington post" is talking about. again, japan across the top. the "usa today," they're talking about an anxious wait and it is an absolutely anxious wait. "the wall street journal," mika, when we talk about the nuclear situation, "the wall street journal" has it ri
very much. a week into the campaign the u.s. role in libya is about to change. nato will take over enforcement of the no-fly zone but rebels and pro-gadhafi forces are fighting it out street to street. nbc's richard engel is one of the first journalists to reach ajdabiya where there are battles raging now. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. rebels have taken about half of this city. gadhafi's forces still contain pockets and have tanked positioned around the edges. we have seen street-to-street fighting. we can hear gunfire now. rebels have been taking cover, firing machine guns, trying to find gadhafi's forces and drive them out. this is what the war in libya has become. the western air strikes will take out gadhafi's heavy weapons, tanks, aircraft and allow the rebels to push into cities themselves and fight it out almost hand to hand with gadhafi's forces in several cities in libya. >> you talk hand to hand. i was struck on thursday by your reporting and how poorly equipped the rebels seemed to be in terms of weapons. are you sai seeing indications that they are being supp
to the u.s. government $125 billion in the last two years of profits. of course i want to emphasize that was not the purpose of the interventions. >> we'll not do it again. >> we are not doing it again. but we have i think managed at least well enough that the taxpayer can feel that they have gotten at least in this respect they have gotten their money back. >> thank you. ranking member. mr. paul. chairman of the monetary policy subcommittee. >> thank you, mr. chairman. let me just say a word about the deficit. the spending and deficit was a concern of mine in the early 1970's because i foresaw that after the breakdown of the branton woods we would have endless spending, deficits, financial bubbles and we have had that. as to whether or not we have military cane seism -- keynesianism, we do. i reject that as well as domestic moln -- domestic monetary canes yism. -- keynesianism. congress is at fault. they spend too much money. congress at times will say the fed's at fault. the congress and the fed are symbiotic, they have a symbiotic relationship because the congress spends and they
in libya at the white house, to go over diplomatic options for e u.s. as martha raddatz reports, there's a limited list of options. >> reporter: president obama sounded clear enough -- >> the violence must stop. moammar gadhafi has lost legitimacy to lead and he must leave. >> reporter: but that looks less and less likely. what if gadhafi wins his battle with the rebels? you could see a blood bath with the libyan leader seeking revenge against the thousands who are opposing him. what is the u.s. willing to do to stop him? none of the options are appealing. setting up a no-fly zone to stop gadhafi's fighter jets. that would require hundreds of warplanes and take months to get going. sending in ground forces. no way the u.s. is committing to that. and what about arming the rebels? almost impossible since officials s y they aren't certain who the rebels are. and remember, the u.s. helped arm mujahideen fighters in afghanistan in the '80s and some and some of those same armed fighters are terrorists. gadhafi has managed to survive where other dictators have failed because he still has his
intelligence-gatherering. this is the first step to where the u.s. could be doing covertly arming the rebels in their fight against gadhafi. now, u.s. officials caution that they have not done that yet. this is essentially laying the legal groundwork to do that. once you do, it comes under fairly strict congressional oversight, but done in a classified way, carl. >> chuck, what has the white house said about this? what are they legally able to say if they want to deny it? >> reporter: it's a covert operation and is legally deniable. that's number one. the white house is not confirming anything. obviously a few weeks ago when this crisis began they did announce that the full capabilities of the u.s. intelligence community would be used. now, at the time the implication was this was about the over the air surveillance, things like that in order to try to track gadhafi's movements. it was also at that time that the cia operatives were going into the country to begin gathering intelligence about the operation and gadhafi. one other thing, carl, the u.s. intelligence community is very optimistic
at 12:18 pm we are waiting for this big earthquake, resulting in a tsunami, to hit u.s. shores momentarily. we will keep you posted. we have about 10 minutes left with congressmen kevin yoder. henry is a democrat. you are on the air. caller: kevin, i would like for you, if you are really serious about doing something about the budget, first of all, i would like you to take some leadership and introduce a bill that would, of course, cut or make sure that congress pays for more of their medical, make sure the congress takes a pay cut, introduce a bill that will cut subsidies to all states for every dollar that each state sends to the federal government. they should get a dollar back. there are no states that should have any kind of an advantage over another state. the republicans do not like government. then cut all of your government contracts. do not accept any more than your state sends in federal dollars. go to the 400 richest people who have more than 155 million people in this country in wealth and ask them to pay their fair share of the taxes. if you are not just trying to
the eastern half of the country. increasingly the u.s. and nato seem more comfortable doing business with this man, mustafa al jaleel, now tasked with forming a government. he said he needs one favor from the west -- a no-fly zone. [ speaking in a foreign language ] >> reporter: we want an air space embargo to keep gadhafi from bringing in mercenaries from africa. we'll do the rest. ratcheting up pressure on gadhafi, secretary of state clinton said a no-fly zone is on the table. >> the people of libya made themselves clear. it is time for gadhafi to go. now without further violence or delay. >> reporter: gadhafi is not listening. civil war seems imminent and the exodus of thousands of refugees along libya's borders every day will likely only grow. still, it doesn't have to be bloody. libya experts say if several of gadhafi's inner circle decide tole bolt the game is over. so far, meredith, that hasn't happened. back to you. >> jim maceda, thank you very much. susan wright is the ambassador to the united nations. >> good morning, meredith. >> you have called gadhafi delusional and dis
of the u.s. debate in part of the transfers to the transitional council? >> we haven't made a decision about arming the rebels or arms transfers, so there has not been any need to discuss that at this point. we did discuss nonlethal assistance and discussed ways of trying to enable the transition national council to meet a lot of their financial needs and how we could do that through the international community, given the challenges that sanctions pose, but recognizing they obviously are going to need funds to keep themselves going. we discussed a broad range of matters and certainly their presentation, which some of you may have seen earlier today as to what kind of civil society and political structure they are trying to build until libya, are exactly in line with what they have consistently said were their goals, their commitment to democracy and to a very robust engagement with people from across the spectrum of libyans is, i think, appropriate. we do not have any specific information about specific individuals from any organization who are part of this, but, of course, we are gett
of independence, and i know that is what you mean but there is no one picture of the u.s. in 1775, because there are so many different united states, if you will and it isn't the u.s. yet, they have the colonies and they have distinct cultures and economies. >> was there a similar political mood across all 13 colonies, in 1775? >> here we get to the issue, how could they ever act together? i think they could act together because they had the same political assumptions and political values and, they had a common enemy. there is nothing like an enemy to pull diverse elements together. and to the extent britain had begun to, first of all, to try to tax the colonies, although they weren't represented in parliament, and then, when the colonies resisted, followed with others, yes, they pulled together and understood the interest of any one colony was the interest of others, and if they could -- if britain could get by, for example, destroying the assembly of new york, because it had resisted a... refused to supply british troops, if they could do that in new york they could do that in any other
to exchange u.s. debt for state that? >> guest: profoundly important. this went into effect. all of the unrest in the states was in part a response to the taxation of the 1780s where the states were trying to retire their revolutionary war debt by taxes on land, a multiple of what they had been before and the people were very rested but hamilton proposed a brilliant idea, that all the state debts would become a natural death. national debt. he would issue bondss on the united states. a 4% rather than 6%. and didn't have to pay the principal we believe. all you had to pay was the interest. you could do that on the revenue that was coming and on the imports plus some excise taxes and the unfortunate run on whiskey. if basically what he did was to relieve a component of their budget which was the majority what we were raising money for. when the state and loggerhead to pay off their revolutionary war debt they no longer had to impose these taxes and the country became much more peaceful. >> host: next call from john in dallas. >> i'm reading about the history of propaganda in america. stuart spea
with that amount of money. we have this to report. general david petraeus, the top u.s. commander in afghanistan is apologizing for a nato air strike that killed 9 afghan children yesterday. in a statement petraeus said we are deeply sorry for this tragedy and apologized to members of the afghan government, the people of afghanistan and most importantly, the surviving family members of those killed by our actions. these deaths should have never happened. i will personally apologize to president karzai. military officials attributed the error to faulty communication as an air weapons team responded to an attack on a nato base. however, the strike is likely to increase already high tensions between karzai and nato commanders who came under scrutiny last month because of another case in which dozens of civilians were allegedly killed. >> we're putting our sons and daughters in an unwinnable situation. this as a parent of young children, this is an unspeakable tragedy. you also, though, look at the americans that are looking up from above, in a country they don't know, trying to figure out whether t
